Three Women, One Story: 1000 Years of Art, History, and Culture

"Women in the Southwest" Summer Lecture Series

Monday, April 30, 2018

Event date: 6/27/2018 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM Export event

The Center of Southwest Studies continues its summer lecture series based on the theme, “Women in the Southwest,” with a presentation from Kate Nelson, Three Women, One Story: 1,000 Years of Art, History, and Culture in Under an Hour, on Wednesday, June 27th at 1:30 p.m. in the Center’s Lyceum Room #120.

Pablita Velarde, Helen Hardin, and Margarete Bagshaw encompass more than a three-generation story of women artists. Their lives also touch on key points of Southwestern history—from Ancestral Puebloans to the Spanish flu, Harvey Houses, hippies, and the evolving arc of Native American art.

Kate Nelson wrote the biography Helen Hardin: A Straight Line Curved and is managing editor of New Mexico Magazine, where she's paid to travel around the Land of Enchantment meeting interesting people and telling their stories. She cut her teeth as a newspaper writer and editor at the Kansas City Star and Albuquerque Tribune and did public relations and marketing for the New Mexico History Museum/Palace of the Governors. She lives in the northern foothills of the Sandia Mountains, where she attempts to garden despite occasional incursions by wild horses.
